Are you still there???

Wow, you know you've taken way too long of a blogging break when you can't remember how to login to your Blog Account. I never meant for it to be this long, it's just, you feel like when you've been away for this long you need a great excuse or like a grand re-blogging post or something.

I do have some really great excuses, but I'll spare you! I guess I better catch you up a little though.

That cozy little nest of ours.........................well, we sold it. Crazy I know, I'm still a little sick about it, but we've prayed a lot and so far things are falling into place. It was on the market a total of three weeks. I just have to say that for all the real estate agents that called and rudely told me to call them back when I was serious about selling our home (we did for sale by owner). Needless to say it sold and now we are in a little two bedroom apartment. We decided to build a new home a few blocks away from where we were. It will have a basement which will give us the room we need for our growing family.




Speaking of growing family, look how big my kids are getting. And my sweet baby.........he's almost walking. Sometimes I really wish I could slow things down.



As far as crafty stuff goes, I need to get my act together. It's just in a little two bedroom apartment, there isn't a whole lot of room to sew. We are set to close on February 15th, so hopefully I'll have my sewing area back by then.

I hope I haven't all my blogging friends, if you are still there, send me a line, I really have missed you.

You're back!!! I was starting to worry about you. I am so excited that you are building a new house, although I think you made a mistake in not building it by me. ;) I am so excited to see pictures of you new home. We were in a 2 bedroom apt while our house was being built. It was rough. I hope you are coping better than I did.

Nicole,
I am still here! I actually asked Carlynn if you guys have been doing ok. I am glad that you guys are doing well. What a beautiful family you have! Congrats on the new house. I know what it is like to leave a "cozy nest" that you have invested time into. Will keep my fingers crossed for you so that you and your darling family can get into your home soon! Looking forward to more crafting posts! You are so talented!

Well, I'm just so excited that you'll be in our ward! We'll be having a little craft night (RS night meeting) on Feb 8th. So it would be a great time to come and meet everyone. Are you in the cul de sac? Looking forward to getting to know you better. Mimi

I have missed you and looked daily to see how you are. You would be amazed at how many people think of you. Can you tell me how your cousin is doing? She hasn't blogged since early November. I'm glad that your doing well, and hope that you will find your crafting space really soon.
Hugs,

I just walked through your house yesterday. My kids are obsessed with checking in on its progress. The wainscoating (sp?) is super cute and the banister looks nice. I love the color you chose for the exterior. Much better then the stinkin' bland model home across the street.
